Oooooh, classy.

Yesterday, over on Facebook, I was invited to sign a petition for the reburial of Richard III at York (a 'cause' that has me ROTFLOL because, you know, I really don't care) that began, "I respectfully demand..." Apart from the fact that this smacks of "With all due respect..." (i.e. none) if I received that it would be binned at once.

I haven't been following this story, and so this BBC report, posted on the 12th March, passed me by.

Abusive letters sent to York Minster because they support -- as they must -- Leicester's plans. I do hope the Richard III Society is not behind those, particularly as I have good friends who are members.

What's more, Leicester are talking about a simple slab, which has, you know, to be better than the OTT plans of the Richard III Society.

The 'Dick Heads' can be very strange people.

My historian's (and republican's) view tends to be guilty as charged but still deserving of a decent burial so stop faffing about and get it done, already!

Amen.

And I say that as a convinced atheist and a Yorkshirewoman born and bred.

Talking of just a simple slab, it works well for Vaclav IV (Wenceslas of Bohemia) in Prague and this was a similar reburial.

Just rolls eyes at it all.


Full of charm, wit and politesse, some people.
